Roy Horn, of the groundbreaking Las Vegas entertainment team Siegfried & Roy, has died.
He was 75.
A spokesman for the duo confirmed that Horn died Friday at MountainView Hospital from complications related to COVID-19. The team announced April 28 that Horn had been treated for the virus.
“Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend,” Siegfried Fischbacher said in a statement. “From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried.
